Although a typical week at BJA is very busy and demanding, students take opportunities to get out into the community and offer help to those in need. Each week rotating middle school homeroom classes visit Pendleton Manor. They spend time talking to residents, singing and sharing God’s word through a brief devotional. Each semester high school students and teachers spend a Saturday morning at Camp Spearhead, a camp for children and adults with special needs and disabilities. Recently the group of volunteers cleared logs and brush from a wheelchair-accessible hiking trail. Music groups take time to minister in song to the men at the Greenville Rescue Mission—and earlier this month the high school orchestra and choir teamed up to present a sacred concert which included testimonies by students.
In November all students will have an opportunity to minister to the needs of others by taking part in a week of giving. The elementary and middle school students will bring in food products, and the high school students will participate in collecting paper goods.
